This one and a half times life bronze portrait bust depicts Washington Irving in period clothing at about the time he returned from Spain, when he wrote "Tales of the Alhambra". One copy resides at Washington Irving's home, an Historic National Park at Sunnyside in Irvington, NY along the Hudson River. This bronze was executed and cast by Mr. Sussman at The Sculpture Center in NYC, where he was director from 1979-1989 in a foundry which was built by Mr. Sussman along with Herk Van Tungran of the Johnson Atelir.
